I still think Sherk got some Wins against top 15 in him . but the main reason I go with Dunham is Sherk really long lay off .

Completely agree.

I would take Sherk, but I think the long layoff and no steroid use for wrestling strength may harm him.

Can't pick a winner here.

Yeah but Sherk has always been extremely committed to being physically in shape so I doubt that Sherk does not show up in shape.

Sherk has been tested like hell and when he fought BJ after returning from his steroid suspension he was both in shape and looked plenty strong. I think people are just sleeping on the guy who until he lost to Edgar was considered the clear #2 LW in the world by alot of people.

I'm thinking Dunham by submission or decision here.
bY Submission? Go watch some Sean Sherk Fights

Sean Sherk??

Does anyone still thinks he has a Matt Hughs like comeback in him? I was wondering what kinda shape he's in at the moment.

Sherk has never really dropped off the pace tbh, a lot of people still have him in their LW top 5, his only 2 losses at 155 are to the current champ Frankie and BJ the former champ.
It wouldn't be surprising to me at all to see him go on a 2 or 3 fight win streak and get a shot - and the one thing you know with Sherk is he will always be in phenomminal shape.

Im going to stick my neck out and say Sherk will win this.

I just think Sherk although a mediocre striker can hold his own there as shown in the Edgar fight i think he can beat Dunham by out working him in the striking and i think the obvious advantage is the wrestling department which Sherk is great at , Dunham wins mostly by submission and Sherk has never lost by Submission.

UD Sherk.

I don't even think it will be a UD I think Sherk is gonna go out with a point to prove after a long lay off that he is still in the fight. Sherk is still one of the best wrestlers in the division and I think he will strike just long enough to set up his shot and put Dunham through the mat and make him in eat GnP till the ref see's enough.

Yeah, because Sean Sherk is such a finishing machine....

Sherk likes to play midget kickboxer nowadays, and Dunham will tear him up.
